Pre-Admission Testing in Staten Island, NY

Each patient undergoing a surgical procedure is evaluated and given a surgical classification. Depending on the individual patient and surgical procedure, a visit to the Pre-Admission Testing Department may be required. During this appointment, you may expect to:

  • Complete necessary demographic information and provide latest insurance cards
  • Be asked about any prescription or over-the-counter medication you may be taking
  • Be asked about any specific food, dye or medication allergies you may have
  • Get a history and physical exam
  • Obtain blood samples
  • Get an X-ray
  • Receive patient education material to prepare for your surgery

The Pre-Admission Testing Department is located on the lobby level near the front entrance. This area is currently under construction and will be moved into a luxurious new space by the end of 2011.
